I was wondering if the Coptic Orthodox church has any canons that stipulate that a person must pray the Agpeya every day? I tend to like to pray without books, particularly the "Jesus Prayer" and just praying straight from the heart with prostrations. I have been given a blessing in the past to do so from my Abouna and was wondering if anyone else has had this experience with prayer and what do the church canons say about all this. Please forgive my grammar i don't usually go on forums and thanks for allowing me to be apart of your online community. God Bless you all.
